Essex Heritage Society Book Book #8: Essex Middle River Beauty Pageants
Newspaper clippings of Essex, Maryland beauty pageants, 1962-1979
Our founding members Mr. and Mrs. Alex and Helen Baumgartner, their family, and peers established this collection to capture a historical snapshot of life in Essex and Middle River, Maryland. The collection contains nearly 300 categorical binders documenting our community activities with articles, pamphlets, and photographs from 1969 through the 1980s. The Heritage Society has scanned the collection to share with our extended community. As we continue to build new collections, we are seeking new materials such as photographs and ephemera that pertain to the community and business history of Essex and Middle River. Please contact email@example.com if you have historical memories or items to donate or would like to become a member.
